This report summarizes the activities and achievements under the Result 2 of the Program Building Disaster Resilience in Sub-Saharan Africa. African Regional Economic Communities (RECs) have operational capacities for coordination, planning and policy advisory capacities regarding DRR in order to support their respective Member States, regional and sub regional programs for the period 2016-17.

Result Area 2, known as “Result 2” or more simply, “R2,” is one of two Result Areas managed by the World Bank/GFDRR (the second one being Result 5). The specific objective of Result 2 is to strengthen and accelerate the effective implementation of an African comprehensive DRR and risk management framework at regional level. It does this by:

  • Strengthening the coordination capacity of RECs
  • Assisting RECs in developing planning and policy advisory capacities to support their member states and regional/ sub-regional programs on DRM.

This objective is achieved by providing targeted support to African RECs to strengthen their capacities for improved coordination, planning, policy advisory and knowledge dissemination to advance the regional DRM agenda and better support their respective member states in taking informed decisions in building resilience to disasters.
